The quarry of the Lime Kiln is one of the largest quarries in the Parisian region. With a 100ha area, it is the result of an assembly of four different networks. After the end of the working, at the beginning of the twentieth century, the quarry has been converted for mushrooms cultivation.
Today, an area is still used for the cultivation of mushrooms, and this area is inaccessible from the rest of the quarry.

Let's have a look.
